It seemed to me that rating functions, bookmarking, logging can be
divided into two groups: The one with functions that the user
actively selects (e.g. "Bookmark this file") and the other which
collects important information automatically which can then used
for analysis afterwards.
I decided to make a very simple
implementation of the latter one.

- every time, mpeg.c fills
the mpeg buffer with data from a track (AKA "plays a file"), one line is
added into /.rockbox/.log_file in the format YY-MM-DD
PLAY Filename

- this data can be analyzed with external
programs/scripts easily

- a sample windows program
shows all directories in a list, sorted, and shows you the directories
you never played. You can then delete these directories (they
obviously only use disk space). You should have used your AJB
some weeks to have useful results... http://www.uwe-

- The patch is
on the patch tracker. If I change something, it can be found there. I
may also update the win program (same URL then).

- A
compiled version to play around with can be downloaded here:




- If the
function is considered to be useful and to be added to CVS, I'll add
the necessary code to make it configurable (loggin on/off) in the
This task depends upon
